On our weekend trip to take care of Jonah, I got the bindings hand sewn down on several items. This is my first Cheddar Cheese & Crackers doll quilt, which is a reproduction of an antique quilt. Lori, at Humble Quilts, had a quilt along for making this and I still have the second one to finish. I love this little quilt and will be keeping this one for myself. I don't know what I'll do with the second one yet. The colors on this picture didn't come out really well, especially the pinks on the lower part of the quilt.This quilt was a BOM from the LQS. I did two versions of this one and gave the bright one to our GD for her birthday. I have plans for this one too.
I quilted it on my sewing machine.
You can't really see the quilting on the back of the quilt, but here it is.
This is another little doll quilt bound.
Two table runners bound. I did most of the hand sewing on the bindings during our drive to Arkansas and back.
Sept. 18 is DH's 50 year high school reunion and this is the outfit that I got to wear (I hope it qualifies as cocktail attire). The pants are very loose and the top is sparkly. You can't tell, but there is a lot of aqua in the top (around the edges and the sparkles). I needed a purse, so I made one out of some fabric I had on hand and put a sparkly thing on it. It's black and brown, but I think it will work. I didn't want to buy something for one night.
We're starting to pack the camper because we leave on Friday and will be gone 5 weeks. We'll post pictures during the trip if we can find wi-fi along the way. We can't wait to get farther north where it isn't 100 degrees - we've had 12 days in a row of over 100.
